Black-Hawk boys best Raiders

STAFFORD — The Brooke Point basketball team, which graduated only two players — Darnell Washington and. P.J. Kania — from last year&3039;s team, appear ready to benefit from the youth movement of last season.

A major step will be finding an offense for a team that had shot only 38 percent in its first two games. An important ingredient entered the mix on Tuesday night as Derick Harris tallied a career-high 23 points to help the Black-Hawks (2-1) soar to a 79-38 Group AAA non-district win over Stonewall Jackson (0-4) at Brooke Point High School.

According to Brooke Point ninth-year coach Joe Kania, with a young team, the offense is the last thing to come around.

“I&3039;ve always said the offense is the last thing to come around. So far we have been able to score off transition and off the defense. And tonight we got a good shooting performance from Derick.”
